Virtual Photo Organizer 1.4.2 released!

The main emphasis in this version was put on easy usability. Photos can now be added to an album by just dragging the files into VPO from Explorer, most internet browsers or any other application that supports file dragging. Of course this also works the other way round as well. VPO now copies the photos to the windows clipboard when you click on Copy in the photos pane and also allows you to drag the photos to any application that supports file drop, such as Explorer, Word, Power Point, etc.
Another very handy feature that was added due to request, makes VPO search all subdirectories of a dropped collection of files recursively for photos.

Virtual Photo Organizer 1.3 for .NET 1.1 released!

After quite some time there is finally a new version.
It features some great additions, such as a red eye remover, a click&drag area selector for easier cropping, the ability to zoom into an image in photo editor by just clicking on the point you wish to see, and an automatic updater, which will make retrieving new versions a child's play.
On the side of the changes I also have some great news: the photo editor now consumes a lot less CPU power and memory through a completely reworked drawing logic.
And of course this version also ships with loads of bugfixes, which e.g. make it now possible to nest cropping and resizing operations multiple times.

Virtual Photo Organizer V.1.1.2 for .NET released!

In this version I fixed a rather nasty bugm which caused an exception when minimizing the photo editor.
I also added a general exception handler, which catches an exception in the unlikely event that it is not handled yet and prints out some debug info on the screen, which I ask you to take a screenshot of and mail it to me so that any remaining bugs can be fixed as quickly as possible.
